Alright so I'm on the biggest zombie kick lately. Yeah, I'm always loving zombies-
But with the return of TWD I'm just going bloody crazy.

It's like-
My new inspiration.

Not to mention the fact that Norman Reedus gets to be such a badass. Like, seriously, him and Flanery have been two of my faveourite actors for almost 10 years and just- hngh.
...Well I've had a crush on Flanery longer because I used to ADORE Adventure of Young Indiana Jones. Still do actually. Such a great series. oh god.


I love the depth that Reedus has given Daryl and I mean like he's become my faveourite, not just because he's played by Norman, but because he fascinates me and has more depth than a lot of the characters once you get past the outer grit.

ANYWAYS BACK TO THIS DRAWING.

Prequel to another one that I'm gonna do with me and ~mcrfreakx3 because she's awesome and ADSSDGHJHKLA-
I'm so excited.
It's gonna be awesome.

Seriously.

LIKE.

SERIOUSLY.


.
.
.
I'm so enthusiastic about anything zombie-related. Oh good lord.

BTW yeah- totally using my personna here because my fatass wouldn't make it 10 feet without dying. lolololol.

I've also decided my personna is going to be the OC for the fic I'm writing. Get over it. The only way that she's really like my personna is in general looks- And clothing choice. Besides that? My OC is way more badass than my personna.

OC name: Vallerie (Prefers Vi or Val.)
Age: 24
Hair: Strawberry Blonde
Eyes: muddy Blue-green
Build: Average-thin depending on the place in the story.
Main weapons: Easton baseball bad, Handgun, Hunting Knife.
Terrible aim with a gun. Incapable of wielding a crossbow while moving. Handy with a knife. Has a mean swing.

The wound on her hand is explained in chapter two. Not a bite, trust me lolol. most of the blood is walker blood, as you can guess. Zombie slaying is dirty work, yeah?



About 6 hours of work here. All done in SAI.

Val's just a boring human-
lol
I'm actually having a hard time writing her story because I'm so unused to writing "real" characters rather than one in a fantasy setting :lmao:

lol. I find that putting yourself in their shoes (and I mean this almost literally) helps. So what I mean is, take, say, five-ten minutes, and what you would notice, what you would not. That kind of thing.

Well thanks :)
Viv is kind of my "slef-insert" OC but I'm so awkward with people that figuring her ways to interact with these characters is just as awkward lolololol
It's odd :XD:

Lol. My self-insert OC/Mary-Sue (in my opinion) acts nothing like me! Well, she swears a lot... Lol.

Well, happy writing

You indeed have god's hand if you drew those bricks by yourself. o.o
Can you please tell me how you shaded her legs? :3

Aw, nooo, I used a stock photo. It's in the desc. :XD:
I can't draw a straight line to save my life, honestly lol

After the skin tone I made a new later and selected a colour slightly darker and put it over it using the Brush tool. Then used a big brush in the Water tool to smooth it out. Then repeat the process with another darker shade :)

I'm jealous of your hand drawing skills and perfect anatomy! :O

Varriel Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
Aww thanks!
Actually, the other side of her hand looks terrible which is why I cut the picture off there :iconteheplz:

This is actually the best my anatomy has been for a long while. I've been doing alot of anatomy studies lately so I think this is just showing that, to a degree, they are paying off :)

Lol, even the best of artists has their secrets! :iconteheplz:

I seriously gotta study my anatomy. xD I have an art block lately and it has not recovered. I'm trying really hard to draw a hot looking Madara. xD

LOVE. And I totally understand that zombie kick haha. Gotta love all the blood and gore. |D Really jealous of your hair coloring skills. Still nice and dimensional without lineart for each little hair. c:

My only suggestion for this is to have a bit more darker parts on the blood splatters--blood dries fairly quickly (especially if you're running around), so there would be dark flaky patches around or inside the wounds/blood splatters.

ffff Thank youuuuu
I'm so jelous of your drawing skills in general so, like, holy compliments batman *dies*
:XD:

Yeah, I realized it was a bit bright after I'd posted it so I'm probably gonna go back and darken it tonight :)
Oh god, yes. I just started to miss drawing gorey stuff so bad. Everyone commissioned me for these pretty anime girls and I'm just like.. cringing on the inside like "Pleeease, tell me to kill something." o-o

The hair is actually 4 different shades after the flatcolour. I'm a bit obsessive about hair so I tend to go overboard ;D

Yesssss. I've just had no time to do anything recently, but I want to draw gorey stuff so badly. ; u; I don't have enough hands to draw all the shit I want to XD ffff

SAMEEEE. I think I spend more time on hair than I do on any other part LOL

:lol: I think everybody's gone Zombie/TWD crazy!!! So you're not alone there ;)

Great line work, I especially dig her hair.

The fact your OC will be using a baseball bat is reason enough for me to want to read it :nod:

I was a fan from the start of the show but was a bit.. idk iffy on posting up anything TWD related because I really do get overly enthusiastic about it xD
But with season two and this sudden explosion of fans I'm finally getting my love for the series out there lol

And thank you!
The apocalypse is no place for neat hair so I figured a more wild look worked. ffff If the zombie apocalypse ever came about my first things to grab would be a crossbow and a bat. :XD:

Ah, if you're interested the firstuneventful chapter is up on my fanfiction . net account :)
